• Principal's Update 9/22

    Dear Cleveland Families,

    It was a pleasure seeing you at Back to School Night. It has been three years since we were able to hold this event in person. I hope you were able to connect to the teachers that support your student and that you learned more about our academic program. 
    I want to share some updates with you as we are finishing the first month of school.

    Progress Reports

    Next week is the end of our first progress report period. This first report falls half way through the first quarter. With this progress report, teachers are letting you know if your student is not on track to earn a C or better at the quarter. We are early in the school year, and we want students to develop those academic habits that will help them achieve the learning standards in their classes. Please encourage your student to reach out to their teachers when they need support. We have a variety of tutoring resources available, and the FLEX period is designed so that students can have another opportunity during the school day to interact with their teachers. Our academic calendar includes when we have FLEX periods, and next week we will have Flex periods on Wednesday and Thursday.

    Friday, September 23-No School

    There is no school tomorrow for students across PPS. This day is a professional learning day for teachers. It is also a non-work day for our support staff. We will have two more of these days this school year, and they are marked on our school calendar. 

    Fall Sports

    We are about half way through our fall season with over 402 students participating in athletics. Our cross country and football teams are growing by leaps and bounds. Our soccer teams will be finishing up non-league games this week and then they will be vying for the PIL title in league play. Volleyball is pursuing an aggressive schedule with tournament and league games. Here is the varsity schedule for the next couple of days. You can access the athletic schedule from our website under athletics. Come out and support our Warriors!

    Thursday, September 22:

    Volleyball at Jefferson HS at 7:00 PM

    Girls Soccer at Delta Park vs. Central Catholic at 6:30 PM

    Boys Soccer at the Cleveland Stadium vs. Hood River at 7:00 PM

    Friday, September 23:

    Football at the Cleveland Stadium vs. Roosevelt at 7:00 PM

    Clubs and Activities

    Athletics is one way for your student to be involved at Cleveland. We also have a rich array of student clubs and student racial affinity groups. If you were here at Back to School Night, you had the opportunity to meet some of the student leaders from the racial affinity groups. Their meeting times are posted around the school. The club fair next Wednesday, September 28, during the FLEX period is an opportunity for your student to learn about the clubs we have and to become involved. Please encourage your student to attend and ask them about the clubs they would like to join.
